Stamps: What a melon (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps); Amy R Sweet Sentiments
Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green, Melon Mambo polka-dot DP (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: computer printer, hole punch, Peapod twine (The Twinery), small sponge, glue, and dimensionals
I printed the watermelon image four times (whisper white, garden green (x 2), melon mambo polka-dot dp). I cut out the white as a card base, scoring along the top of the watermelon, folding the cardstock and then cutting out the shape. I cut a full watemelon shape from the melon mambo and mounted it on front of the card base. I cut out just the rind from garden green, added a little sponging along the lines and glued it on top of the polka-dot dp. I cut a second full watermelon from garden green, turned it over and mounted it on the back of the card base to add extra stability.
I used my black marker to color in the seeds and stamp the sentiment. I added the twine to the sentiment and mounted it to the card front, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.
The second card is for DTGD challenge by BAR. I used the new Watercolor Winter set from SU! and "watercolored" the image with ink and a blender pen. The sentiment reads "Wishing you" ... and on the inside "a very Merry Christmas". Hope you like.
Stamps: Watercolor Winter (SU!); Merry and Bright (Amy R)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink: Stazon black, Riding Hood Red, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: blender pen, silver stitched white ribbon (unknown), Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue dot, and sticky strips
I stamped the poinsettia in Stazon black and colored with ink and blender pen. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to positon my sentiments and stamped in black.
I wrapped the ribbon around the top and tied a bow. I secured the back of the bow to the card front with a rolled glue dot. I mounted the card front onto the Riding Hood Red card base.
The inside panel has a partial image of the poinsettia, watercolored the same as the main image.
